Former Model Nicole Weider Beats Cancer: ‘Thankful to God’

By Movieguide® Contributor

Former model Nicole Weider revealed that after months of prayer and chemo, her body has officially defeated cancer.

“I’m so thankful to God and proud to say I’m a cancer survivor 👊🏼. It tried to take me down but with your prayers, my faith and medicine I have beat it. I still have maintenance shots and radiation to go but with Christ I can do all things who strengthens me. 🙌🏼,” Weider wrote on social media.

Weider was first diagnosed with cancer last November. Though it was initially categorized as stage two breast cancer, further testing found that malignant tumors had spread to three other parts of her body, redefining it as stage four cancer. However, even amid the initial shock, Weider turned to God for strength.

“It’s so interesting because when I got this stage 4 cancer diagnosis, I really started to have flashbacks of when I was young and growing up, and then why things happened in a certain way, and what God had in store instead,” she wrote a few days after her diagnosis.

“Obviously, you don’t know the full plan until you get to heaven but at least in my case I’m really starting to see things from God’s point of view of why things unfolded in my life the way they did,” she added.

In receiving the cancer diagnosis, Weider felt especially thankful that God moved her from her life of modeling into a healthy 12-year marriage with two kids along with a Christian ministry that she can now lean on for support.

In December, she gave a further update as she began chemotherapy, saying that her disease was bringing her closer to Christ.

“If the devil thought giving me stage 4 cancer was going to make me doubt God or question his goodness he picked the wrong girl,” Weider wrote. “I feel more close to God now than ever before. I see His presence and love and little reminders all around me. I don’t know how people walk cancer journeys or serious illnesses without Jesus. That boggles my mind. I am scared – but I know Jesus is with me.”

Praise the Lord that only a couple of months later Weider is now entering into remission. Please keep her in your prayers as she continues her maintenance treatments.

Former Victoria’s Secret model Nicole Weider is asking for prayers for her children amid her cancer diagnosis.

“I think one of the hardest parts about having a cancer diagnosis is worrying about my kids,” she wrote on Instagram. “But I’m trying to remember that God is a God of peace and not of fear! The past couple of nights I haven’t really been able to sleep because it keeps ruminating in my mind.”

“I want them to see me be strong, courageous and not afraid of having cancer,” she continued. “Because if I am it won’t be as scary for them. I’ll be heavily relying on Jesus!! Can you also please pray for my kids that even if it gets hard, they will see mommy be strong, and that they feel Jesus’ love also like never before? Your prayers are working. And your kind comments mean SO much to me. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!”
